Branched from an earlier discussion
Just like the original contributor to this thread, I ran into this after upgrading from an earlier version, and we were no longer getting only traces > 30 seconds. so know I know at least how this was working. that being said, I'm cautious about enabling this feature in our new production environment due to concern for overhead that will be requested of the agent. Is this not the same as manually starting a transaction trace session for all agents (if configured as stated below) and running it until the EM is stopped? From my interpretation, only the first TraceSession definition is enabled, but I included the whole file from the 8.2 installation, in case I'm overlooking anything. I sense this is ok for a development environment, but not for a production. Am I being too cautious for no reason?

Thanks for this thread - this is the only place I've found information on PersistentTransactionTracerConfiguration.xml.

<!-- capture traces matching on a parameter -->
